Sum­mons is­sued de­spite not break­ing rules

New Straits Times - - NEWS / FINDING SOLUTIONS -

A MO­TORIST has claimed that he was slapped with a sum­mons de­spite not break­ing any park­ing rules.

On Feb 13, W.B. Soh had parked his SUV in Jalan Bang­gol, in Kuala Tereng­ganu, at 8.10am to run an er­rand in the city.

“The park­ing me­ter clearly showed that there were 23 min­utes left for the park­ing spot,” said Soh, who is from Gong Badak, Kuala Nerus.

When he re­turned, he said he was shocked to see that the Kuala Tereng­ganu City Coun­cil (MBKT) per­son­nel had left a sum­mons slip on his wind­screen for pur­port­edly vi­o­lat­ing park­ing rules.

He claimed that sev­eral mo­torists who parked in that stretch also ex­pe­ri­enced the same predica­ment. He hoped MBKT would ad­dress the is­sue.

ACTIONLINE:

MBKT mayor Samiun Salleh said he di­rected the head of park­ing ser­vices divi­sion to in­ves­ti­gate the mat­ter upon re­ceiv­ing the com­plaint.

He said Soh’s prob­lem was re­solved the same day.

“We despatched an of­fi­cer to meet Soh to get more de­tails.

“We found that a mis­take had been com­mit­ted by our traf­fic war­den.

“Soh’s sum­mons has been re­voked and he has been no­ti­fied,” said Samiun.
